Andrew Turner, founder of Deep Life Records (deepliferecords.com ), has released music on N*Soul Records (LA, CA), PWM Records (Australia), Giant Squid (SD), subVariant (CHI, IL) and has remixed and produced tracks since Windows 95's plug-n-play feature was all the rage. His new project under the alias JahWarrior is inspired by the artists from the Blood and Fire label from the early 70?s, who used innovative methods of production using the mixing desk itself to produce "effect motifs" such as feedback loops, and creatively manual automation on the sends. Andy is also highly influenced by the likes of Orb and Autechre, who employ on-the-fly and stochastic, algorithmic, generative methods in music production. He has performed at festivals such as LifeLight Festival, Cornerstone Festival, has hosted a brief residency at Brazil in NOLA, Club Pompeii in Phoenix, and promoted house parties and club events in the Mid-West when he was a young'in. Currently he is using max for live, reaktor, processing, arduino, and open sound control with multi-touch interfaces like the iPad and monome. His niece Ruth sometimes assists him in the studio with her new Casio SA-45.
